Scrambled Eggs

I know it has been awhile between posts I can’t believe we are already in March!  I have really let this blog slide since last year.  I have been struggling to find the time to do anything with it as i’m always so tired (my youngest son doesn’t like to sleep at the moment) and I think the no sleeping has been affecting my weight loss, so I have basically just semi given up with it, as I was putting in so much effort with food and exercise and seeing no results…Although I have stuck with keto i have been slipping up every now and then and just taking random bites of the kids food or not being as strict as i know I should be.  To be honest with you although I still eat well  most days I forget to log food in myfitness pal so I don’t even know if i’m hitting my macros or not.(probably another reason i’m not loosing weight)  So I have decided that enough is enough I still have 50 kg’s to loose so I best get my act together and put in the hard work!!  Time to get my motivation back and enjoy that feeling of accomplishment!

That is why I thought I would start fresh with one of my go to recipes scrambled eggs which also happens to be one of my favourite meals as they are quick, tasty and you can add almost anything you like to them depending how hungry you are.  They are just so versatile.

There are so many ways people say to cook scrambled eggs it’s either on a high heat quickly or a low heat slowly…I honestly prefer the low heat method they just have a more silky taste to them.

I hope you enjoy 🙂

  1. Diabetic and doing keto os. I don’t stay in ketoses for mor than 12 hours. Never higher than moderate. I eat no more than 20 carbs a day. I drink at least 70 oz of water a day. Any suggestions.

    1. Hi Linda,

      Firstly are you Type 2 or Type 1? If you’re Type 2, then food has always worked best for me, I have noticed that staying in ketosis or rather the advertised optimal ketosis is not necessary, as long as you are 0.5 or higher your body is in ketosis, you won’t lose fat quicker or feel better if you go higher. It’s honestly more a marketing ploy but companies to get you buying their product than a real need or result based science.

      Expect to fall in and out of ketosis throughout the day depending on a lot of things, such as meal timing, exercise, types of exercise and sleep. All will have an effect on where you ketones are at. The when it comes to testing, only ever test with blood strips, not urine strips are they give exaggerated readings and they are reading what you are losing from your body, not whats currently in your body.

      Again companies have used this to upsell their products. Do Functional interval training once a day, eat the right amount of calories not to burn through your muscle, and stop wasting your money on Keto OS, better off spending it on Hiit training or Body weight Training, and eat real food. You will have much better results.

      If you’re Type 1, Ketosis is a risky venture and you should always seek medical advice before choosing this lifestyle change, as Ketoacidosis can occur which can kill you.

      Being a diabetic I can only tell you to make sure you speak with your doctor and keep regular testing of your bloods, as I was soon off my meds, and you need to work with your doctor closely so you can adjust them accordingly.

      I’ve been off meds now for a year, lost 35 KG and the trick is eat properly, eat enough calories (most people starving themselves and this ends up stalling weight loss), and do interval training, I do F45 6 times a week, and can now even eat carbs without medication. Though I have to admit I prefer not to 🙂
